Padmakara Translation Group Receives the 2017 Shantarakshita Award

Wulstan and Helena at the Asura Cave in Nepal

At the June, 2017 Tsadra Translation and Transmission conference which Shambhala Publications was a sponsor of, we were delighted that Wulstan Fletcher and Helena Blankleder were honored with the Shantarakshita award for excellence in translation.

To listen to Wulstan discuss he and Helena's translation process, watch the wonderful video about translating Shantideva's Way of the Bodhisattva—the whole talk is wonderful but the part on their collaboration begins at 5:50.
